Naturopathy: Natural Medicine to restore health and harmony
Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness. Naturopathy treats each person as an individual and supports the whole person to live a healthy lifestyle. The foundations of naturopathy are based on the importance of a healthy diet, clean fresh water, sunlight, exercise and stress management.
Naturopathy aims to educate the person to look after their own health and the health of their family, minimising symptoms of any illness, supporting the body’s capacity to heal, and balancing the body so that illness is less likely to occur in the future.
A range of therapies are used to support the person. Therapies may include nutritional medicine, diet advice, herbal medicine, homoeopathy, lifestyle advice, supplements and other therapies such as massage.
You can attend naturopathy as a stand alone therapy or in conjuction with acupuncture. A standard session is 60 minutes. The first session involves a detailed review of your health, your health history and your lifestyle/diet.
This is a recommended treatment for anyone looking to resolve health problems in a natural and holistic way.
